Coffee With The Authors: Sarah Shoemaker

Coffee With The Authors is a live, conversational interview with local and regional authors about the writing craft and process. This Glen Arbor Arts Center series continues August 26, 11 am with novelist Sarah Shoemaker in a conversation about historical fiction. Sarah Bearup-Neal, GAAC gallery manager, leads the discussion.

Shoemaker, a Leelanau County resident, published Children of the Catastrophe, in 2022. Set in the early 1900s, Shoemaker crafts a fictionalized telling of a Greek family’s progress through the final, turbulent decades of the Ottoman Empire. Using the historical record as her map, Shoemaker builds a multi-generational story. In her August 26 conversation, Shoemaker will talk about how historical fact informs her fiction, and how she develops the voices of characters whose lives are rooted in a lost time.

Coffee With The Authors is offered without charge, and enjoys the support of the Glen Lake Community Library.
